2018 Transfer Notes
AC Woodruff Place is making quite the splash in the transfer market this year. After a so-so 2017 season, the club has decided to re-tool. One of those tools is former Mapleton manager, and former, former Fountain Square manager, Jai Van De Sai. In another development, AC Woodruff Place wooed Fountain Square’s Julia “The Hammer” Quattrini to take over as its manager, and she immediately began her reign by poaching neighboring talent from her former team and Real West. The League is currently investigating charges of tampering and improper benefits.
Atletico Cottage Home is licking its wounds after losing the main core of its 2017 runner-up team. Former co-captain Matt Stump left for future pastures in Mapleton. Meanwhile, former co-captain Amy Korolev is on a nine-month hiatus and is rumored to be negotiating a contract for ACH’s 2036 squad with the youngest signee ever.
Bates-Hendricks FC once again saw its roster hit capacity almost immediately, as the fan favorite team continues to turn away hundreds of would-be players. Manager Tyler Giffel continues his “unique” approach to team management. “Utilizing our binders of women, we were able to poach Gretchen Szostak from Fletcher Place and recruit an identical set of twins,” he told a totally reliable, anonymous source.
Mapleton FC may have won the 2017 regular season title, but they have their sights set on the league title this year. In a move that surprises no one, the team has begun searching deeper into the future for players to round out their squad.
Meridian-Kessler United, despite the swirling rumors of a move to the suburbs, managed to increase its number of women players as well as its median age by 20 years.
Midtown FC has capitalized on Real West’s mass exodus by signing Colton Vincent whose right leg is affectionately named “Thor’s Other Hammer”.
What’s the opposite of a black hole? Whatever it’s called, it describes Real West. More than half the team will not return in 2018, including Real West forefather Jeff Bumgardner who has decided to hang up his cleats, and Team Mom Teresa Tatum who is also rumored to have eyes on the 2036 season. She declined multiple requests to comment.
